ICL Group is a world leader in the production and distribution of specialty fertilizers, bromine, and other flame retardants. The company has more than 13,000 employees in 45 plants worldwide, supporting ICL Group’s global operations and widespread distribution.
ICL Group production processes involve potentially hazardous materials and critical processes. With an organizational culture committed to the principles of environmental and public health and safety,
ICL Group puts an emphasis on safety excellence and optimal risk management.
The company wanted to provide their global sites with a tool that would serve as a corporate gold standard to ensure effective management of emergency events. A solution that would enable communication between all relevant internal and external parties, accessible data and the ability to transmit images and video streams from the field would facilitate informed decision-making and faster response during an active crisis.
ICL Group faced numerous challenges that significantly affected decision-making capabilities and slowed response time in emergency events. As a global organization, ICL Group needed an integrated, centralized management system that would connect between all sites and parties involved, providing a reliable flow of information and notification across the internal chain of command.
ICL Group wanted to replace the system of manual event logs and handwritten reports with an automated, connected, digital system that could generate a clear, uniform, and complete situational picture across all global sites. Providing work teams with improved mobile communication capabilities and access to real-time information from a single source was critical to facilitate coordination and to prevent unnecessary delays that could potentially cause event escalation.
At the corporate level, ICL Group wanted full event visibility and reliable multi-level communication,
to maintain situational awareness and engagement in every aspect of cross-organizational emergency management.
ICL Group was seeking a comprehensive solution that enabled real-time data communication and visualization from the field that would make it easier to identify risks or hazards for rapid emergency response, and actionable insights for proactive safety.
Our goal was to connect between all parties involved and show insights and real-time notification on the corporate level.

There was no unified system and no real-time communication, so response time took too long.
